  1. For sure!! Believe me, I have tried. DMSP also covers a wide array of different satellites that use the same bus. The DMSP 5D (ran by Air Force/Space Force) and TIROS_N/NOAA/POES (ran by NOAA) line of satellites ran from (earliest launch) 1976 all the way to 2014 (last launch) with several of these satellites still operating! These satellites were launched on a ridiculously wide array of launch vehicles (Thor Burner DSV-2U, Atlas E, Atlas F, Titan 23G, Delta II, Delta IV Medium, and Atlas V), although a majority were launched on Atlas E. It is a shame that its difficult to kitbash DMSP/TIROS N satellites as they represent such a major chunk of weather satellite history, so it will be good to have these satellites. Also some fun proposals for the bus I am looking into. Also, new texture for the 5m DCSS based on Demosat/Topaz launches!
  2. Yes, I appear to have forgotten to set up the SAF fairing. Not sure why the switch isn’t working, I’ll look into that. As for RL10B2, 90% sure that was only used for DCSS.
  3. Nearly forgot to post this here as well. An interesting use I thought of for the new centaur.
  4. Nearly forgot to post, more progress with Centaur! The interstage switch is done: And also I have started to model the Atlas II hydrazine roll thruster: I'm thinking that once I finish the roll thruster, I'd have enough to start getting this stuff in game. But that would also mean there would be a period where Centaur II/III will be finished before Atlas V is (along with the 400x adapter). But that stuff is next on the list after Centaur.
  5. Made a lot of progress with Centaur II/III... at this point all I need to do is the interstages and the Atlas II roll thruster.
  6. Starting on the Centaur single-engine mount. Saw some stuff on an aft bulkhead subsatellite carrier so I thought it could be a fun thing to do a switch of: The inner rim seen above is 0.125m. IRL, I believe it was most notably used to launch Marco A/B on Insight's Centaur. Luciole has cubesats that are based on Marco iirc: They can just barely barely fit there!
  7. Little more progress on Centaur: Next move will probably be to make the single-engine mount
  8. Centaur Kickstage/Baby Centaur is now on github! Not done yet though, RCS plumes are borked.
  9. A little suprise on its way: Baby Centaur (a small, centaur-based, hydrolox kick stage)! There were a few versions of it but I chose to do the tordial version due to its resemblance to Blok D: I had to deviate slightly from the design to make it play nice with other parts (like interstages and the Centaur avionics, but it looks mostly as intended: It can be used with the Centaur avionics but it also comes with a toggleable 0.9375m upper mount for situations where it does not need the Centaur avionics. It also can be used with jettisonable insulation panels (like the default Centaur): This is still pretty WIP so it might change down the line. There's definitely still some stuff I want to add, like more piping and some greebles.
  10. Some progress on the Centaur II/III tank and fairing. Just started texturing so there's no normal, spec, weathering and a bunch of other stuff. But this shows a general idea of what is to come:
  11. My schedule is a little spotty but some time in the near future I will begin work on revamping Atlas V and later Centaur
  12. The long requested white S4B IU is now on github along with some texture fixes/updates to the IU and S4B engine mounts. Also new engine mount variant (late Saturn IB):
  13. Unfortunately, this was just an April fools joke Pioneer Venus was put on hiatus a long time ago. Not sure if anyone has the energy to finish it for now
  14. trust me... it's much, much, MUCH, farther than it looks. I tried to take a crack at it and after a day I gave up
  15. UPDATE Bluedog Design Bureau v1.10.0 "тролл" I'm excited to announce the BDB v1.10 update! Over the last two weeks I have been secretly working behind the scenes to make never before seen highly requested sets of parts! I tried my best to keep this under wraps to surprise everyone, I hope y'all enjoy this update!! Image credit: Araym DOWNLOAD [GitHub] DOWNLOAD [SpaceDock] v1.10.0 "тролл" New Content and Features - Saturn Nova Rocket - Pegasus Upper Stage (ETS) - Pioneer Venus (finally) - KH-11 - Big Apollo - Small Gemini - Bigger Gemini - Rogallo Gemini - Added Soyuz Parts - 15 new single part satellites that no one has ever heard of before - New delta blue paint variants for Saturn V parts Updates and Enhancements - 58 additional texture variants for agena to represent every single flown and unflown variant of Agena - A new, sorely needed science part called a "magnetometer"! BDB has never featured this sort of experiment and we are excited to feature one after all this time - All part descriptions and titles have been converted to the cyrillic alphabet for 'authenticity'. - All tags have been removed to encourage creativity and exploration of our parts. Good luck trying to make historical craft! - DDS compressed each texture file 3 times over to save 12 MB in file space. Hope you like your textures with a hefty side of green and purple pixels. Bug fixes - Removed Delta IV (it is not a true Delta) - Removed Herobrine
  16. Might not have mentioned it here, but I actually have been planning to totally redo Atlas V/later centaur. Not sure when this is gonna start but I’ll likely be my next big project. also, extremely WIP, but I’m making a shuttle-blanket inspired/modern style texture variant for the CM: no normals yet.
  17. I've always been able to make it work with early engine configs. Which planet pack are you using?
  18. Nah, its on my end I think. Pretty sure I know what I did wrong. A fix will be up some point today
